Meis Architects and Pattern submit final designs for Everton’s new stadium

  • Comment

Everton Football Club has submitted the final designs for its proposed new stadium, drawn up by Meis Architects and London-based Pattern

The Premier League outfit lodged proposals just before Christmas to Liverpool City Council for the 52,000-seat arena at Bramley-Moore Dock.

The brick, steel and glass stadium earmarked for the riverside plot within the huge Liverpool Waters scheme also includes extensive public spaces for use on both match days and non-match days, featuring a Fan Plaza to the east.

Plans will also be submitted for a ‘legacy project’ at the club’s current stadium Goodison Park, with the intention that the council rules on both applications at the same time.

Goodison Park would be redeveloped into housing, a multi-purpose health centre, community-led retail and leisure spaces, and a youth enterprise zone.

New York-based Meis Architects was appointed to the project in 2016 and Sheppard Robson was brought on board a year later. It is understood Sheppard Robson was replaced by Pattern at the end of 2018.

Meis Architects has said the brick base of the proposed stadium pays homage to Scottish architect Archibald Leitch’s latticework at the club’s Goodison Park home, adding that the futuristic steel-and-glass upper level provided a modern flourish.

A large, steep south stand will accommodate 13,000 home fans on match days, with supporters as close to the action as regulations allow. Both the north and south stands could be converted into safe standing should regulations change.

Everton chief executive Denise Barrett-Baxendale said: ‘This is a huge milestone in the club’s history but also a profound statement of intent for our future.

‘It marks the culmination of many years of work that has combined the passion of our fans with world-class design and a commitment to creating something truly special on Liverpool’s waterfront.

‘The stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock will deliver the best possible matchday experience for our fans, new facilities for cultural events and a building that will be a stunning new addition to Liverpool’s built environment.

‘If we are granted planning approval, this will be … a catalyst for Liverpool City Region’s ongoing growth and success.’

Everton revealed at the start of 2018 that the cost of the stadium had ‘escalated significantly’.
